Featuring a weapons-grade cupid (sorry Michelangelo!) a vintage fairground sign, romantic sandy doodles and a mountainous tramp stamp, these are my new Valentine’s card designs available over at Mark Wallis Design, my new online art store. Each pack features 4 different hand made cards, 144 x 144mm, blank inside with square envelopes.
The Vibes has been a little quiet lately, as I went off into the world of E-Commerce to forge an empire. Or set up an online store, depending on how you look at it and how much coffee you’ve had. I’m selling my artwork in the form of colour prints and greetings cards on my new site which features the best of my photography, graphic design and painting. It’s very exciting to see the orders finally coming in after months of hard work, so I declare this shop well and truly OPEN! Step this way http://www.markwallisdesign.com
2012/13 were disasterous for me. But this year has been the charm. I saw Kate Bush live: the musical sorceress put on a show in London that blew us away in September – ‘There are no words’ said Panos. We travelled to Mount Olympus in sunny Greece and saw the most beautiful village in the world, Colmar in France. I exhibited my artwork in Manchester and London, set up my own online store and got a record 3,800 likes for my Tales of the City artwork via Armistead Maupin on Facebook. When I put it all together, I feel like Tigger.
Launching Mark Wallis Design took a lot of time and effort, but I also managed to remix Kate Bush and Goldfrapp, get back into oil painting, and meet Armistead Maupin! I might move slowly but I never keep still – Happy New Year to all.

It’s that time of year again! This is the perfect Xmas party playlist, featuring Nat King Cole, Julie London and Burt Bacharach as you’ve never heard them before. Possibly the most politically incorrect holiday music ever made, uploaded with full permission from The Found Sound Orchestra.
Imagine if the cover of Kate Bush’s new DVD looked like this! It’s only unofficial fan art, but I’ve tried to capture the excitement of going to see the live show back in September. This is a celebration of the hugely emotional performance which made the dreams and nightmares of The Ninth Wave and A Sky of Honey into an epic reality. For three hours in Hammersmith, we perched on the edge of our seats like electrified meerkats, afraid to miss one second of Kate being shipwrecked, tried as a witch, drowned and then fired through an impossible sunset into space. Until the official live DVD, we can at least fantasise about that the cover might look like, which is available as a limited edition fine art print, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kate-Bush-Print-/221574377836?hash=item3396dcb16c&clk_rvr_id=712381339995
